My Life, According to Literature

I’m working on my review of Gulliver’s Travels (which I finished reading weeks ago) and I have about three other reviews to work on too, not to mention all my BBAW posts that I’d like to have pre-scheduled for next week.

Instead of being productive, I’m writing my life according to literature: version 2009.

I saw this first on Rose City Reader, and since then, I’ve seen dozens of others floating around.

Using only books you have read this year (2009), cleverly answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. It’s a lot harder than you think!

I think some of these are rather a stretch, but I have fun reviewing my “books read” lists.

Here is my life, according to literature (links to reviews on Rebecca Reads):

Describe yourself: Daughter of Destiny
How do you feel:  Sailing Alone Around the Room
Describe where you currently live: Material World
If you could go anywhere, where would you go: The Good Earth
Your favorite form of transportation: Cars and Trucks and Things That Go
Your best friend is: The Stranger
You and your friends are: Pride and Prejudice
What’s the weather like: Invisible Cities
Favorite time of day: Tuesday
If your life was a: Fictions
What is life to you: The Odyssey
Your fear:  My Brother Sam is Dead
What is the best advice you have to give:  Hands are Not For Hitting
Thought for the Day: Listen to the Wind
How I would like to die: Golden Legacy
My soul’s present condition: Divine Songs

  1. You’ve got some amazing ones, specially how you feel, where you live and where you’d like to go.

    This was a nightmare for me, too, but my thought for the day made up for it: Do androids dream of electric sheep!

  2. No, I think your answers are good! Remember, it says to be “creative”! 🙂 You have to think of it as poetry as much as prose.

    Thanks for the link. Glad I tempted you with a bookish timewaster!
